The 2015 CPS Distinguished Annual Congress is open to the press and the CPS welcomes members of the media to cover the Congress’s various speeches and panels. The deadline for online media registration is close of business on Friday, July 24, 2015. Onsite media registration may be available, based on availability, but advance registration is encouraged. Confirmations will be made via e-mail. Previous accreditation to CPS events does not guarantee the issuance of media credentials for the 2015 Congress.
The CPS alone reserves the right to credential members of the media. Valid photo identification should be produced upon request, including a current year news media credential issued by law enforcement or governmental agency or a state driver’s license or Passport. Bloggers should be prepared to supply their site’s URL and a bylined article from within the last six months. Freelance writers should submit a letter of assignment or letter of intent from the media outlet being represented. Letters can be e-mailed from the assignment editor to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The right to live stream the 2015 Congress online is reserved solely for the CPS. This applies only to real time online streaming and does not preclude news organizations from uploading video content to websites or archiving footage.
The CPS, in its sole discretion, reserves the right to withhold press credentials from members of the news media; limit the number of credentials assigned to any news organization; and also reserves the right to revoke credentials from members of the news media before or during the event for any reason. Acceptance of press credentials constitutes agreement by the bearer and his/her organization to abide by any terms set forth by the CPS
